One Direction visit Peru

Peruvian fans of the British boy band One Direction got a chance to meet their idols on Tuesday during a visit to the archaeological ruins of Machu Picchu.

An excited group of teenaged girls yelled as the pop singers arrived at the airport in Cusco.

Band members visited the Machu Picchu archaeological site, venerated by the Incas as a place of worship for the gods of the sun and the moon.

The trip followed a concert on Sunday at Peru's National Stadium that was attended by thousands.
